Farmers and others visiting Gisburn and Clitheroe auction marts have the chance to drop in on experienced practice nurses to talk over health concerns thanks to a new initiative, Field Nurse.
The doors of the Gisburn drop in clinic opened in July and the Clitheroe centre last month (September 2016). It is hoped to extend the service in future if it proves a success, but the immediate priority is to establish and develop the existing clinics.
Field Nurse is self funding through donations and various fund raising activities. For administrative and insurance purposes it operates under the umbrella of Crossroads Care Ribble Valley.
